Cablecard missing HD channels

Hi,

 

It looks in Xfinity made some lineup changes recenly and my cablecard was not updated properly. I'm missing some HD channels like MTV2, CMT, Teennick ... I'm sure there are more but you get the idea. How do I get my cablecard subscription updated properly?

 

Thanks

I have this exact problem too. Some HD channels are missing and others have moved. I use a cablecard with Tivo.

Re: Cablecard missing HD channels

Comcast has moved some channels to IPTV and that technology is not comaptible ith cablecards. As they move more channels to the technology more of them will disappear and be unavailable to cabcard users. Unless TiVo and others need top step up and stop this otherwise there products will be useless in the near future.

The new TiVo Edge might be compatible with IPTV. As for existing TiVo owners, they're about as out of luck as pretty much every VCR owner when pretty much everybody abandoned 480i broadcasting and switched from analog broadcasts to digital. Besides - isn't Comcast trying to get out of the cablecard business?
